Update on Shaw Shuttle Yearbook Project

Here is an update on the Shuttle Yearbook Project

On March 23, 2015 I posted  a description of the Shuttle Yearbook Project.  I developed that project with the Director of the East Cleveland Public Library.  The goal of the project is to have a copy of every Shuttle Yearbook posted on the website of the East Cleveland Public Library   

The project requires those of us with copies of the Shuttle to lend those copies to the Library.  The Library will, at their own expense, scan the lent Shuttles onto their website and return the Shuttle to its owner.  There was considerable interest in this when I posted in March.  So far the Library has received 5 Shuttles for scanning.  The Library and I thank those who lent their Shuttles and hope that others will do the same.

The books will be scanned in batches and the first batch will be sent to the vendor in early June.  It isn’t too late to get your Shuttle into this batch.  If you miss this deadline, you could get your book into the next group for scanning later in the summer.

We are looking for Shuttles from the following years:
1918 and 1919
1921 through 1929
1934, 35, and 36
1942, 45, 46 and 49
1952, 53, 54, 56, 57, and 59
1960 through 1968
1971 through 1977
1983, 86, and 87
1993 to the present
